The clutch fan will do that. Not saying this is your problem just one thing to check.
How do I check if the clutch fan is working properly or not? ThanksThe clutch fan will do that. Not saying this is your problem just one thing to check.
I may sound stupid on this, but the only think I have attatched to my water pump is the spacer, and the actual fan, it doenst look like I have a clutch fan. ThanksWith the engine off give it a spin. If it does not freewheel or feels crusty it is bad.
I just noticed that there is a bold missing and when I grab the fan by the spacer I get a little play, so I need to get a bolt for that, would you happen to know the bolt size. Thanks for the suggestions.The last 78 Eldorado I had was a '78 with 425 and a clutch fan. Maybe they went cheap on them and used flex fans like the RWD cars of yours could have been swapped somewhere along the way. Dunno. At least that's not the problem. Could still be whacked like the other poster suggests.
